Question Trigeminal Nueralgia and Denture

I had my top teeth pulled on Sept. 19, 2005 and a denture made. While having the denture in I am in constant pain on the right side and the palate area.. Wondering if anyone has had this happen to them. Never had any problems with this kind of pain before I had my teeth pulled. Only experience the pain when the denture is in. My oral surgeon and dentist can not find anything wrong so will be going to a neurologist on Oct. 9th.. My oral surgeon prescribed 600 mg Ibuprofen every 6 to 8 hours for pain and it doesn't help at all. Does this sound like Trigeminal Nueralgia?? Has anyone experienced this? Thanks for any information anyone can give me.

Shirley

Re: Trigeminal Nueralgia and Denture

My sister had trigeminal neuralgia. If the pain is only when the denture is in, then I think it's not TN but perhaps a problem with the denture. TN pain episodes can happen any time...very often when cold air from a AC vent blow on that side of the face. TN is caused by a compression of the trigeminal nerve behind the ear.

Re: Trigeminal Nueralgia and Denture

If the shocks only happen with the dentures in, then it is NOT TN.
TN is very painful. I just had brain surgery for it this year, and have been battling with it for years. It is horrible and can happen at any moment. Advil and those meds will not help TN at all. You need either a morphine pill (from the hospital) or an antisezure drug from the neuro.
But if the shocks only happen with the dentures in, then it may just be hitting a nerve...and is not TN.

Stefani: I hope you surgery went well. My sister had a microvascular decompression done at Presby Hopsital at the U of Pittsburgh. Dr Janetta there invented the procedure. Hers was very successful....

Re: Trigeminal Nueralgia and Denture

Thank you both for your information.

The pain is not shocks. It is a constant pain. My dentist and oral surgeon have examined me over and over and just can not find a nerve that is causing the problem. My dentist has made many adjustments to the denture and only when she knows for sure there is a problem in that spot. They are baffled. Do you think the neurologist will be able to find the nerve and if he can do you know what he will be able to do to help the situation??? I am just guessing but I think the neurologist will probably order a Cat Scan or MRI. Does that sound reasonable to you?

Stefanie: I pray your surgery with well and that you are now pain free....and Titchou: I am glad your sister's surgery was successful....God Bless You All!!

Thanks,
Shirley

Shirley: Wish I could offer more suggestions but really can't. Perhaps the neurologist will have some ideas. Sounds like a fit issue with the denture. Dental things like this are often very illusive. Good luck!
